This is quite the funky place but it's clean, reasonably priced and friendly. It used to cater to a Finnish crowd and, charmingly, some things are bi-lingual in that language. Now it seems to have a slightly Middle Eastern flavor. Cooking in the restaurant is pretty basic but breakfast is inexpensive and worth it. I gave it four stars rather... More

This was the second time we used this motel for our golfing holiday in Lake Worth. Again we were very satisfied with the friendliness and helpfulness of the manager and his staff. The room that we got was large, with two queen size beds, and sparkling clean. We were told that the hotel is gradually renovating all its rooms, and... More

Owner rents to druggies and hookers. Police are constantly there to arrest their clients. Rooms are run down and dirty. It is definitely cheap and no extra charge for the cockroaches. Thank goodness we only stayed one night. Other small motels are located on Federal Highway in Lake Worth that look clean. Next time I will check out the room... More

We stayed for 9 days in this motel during our golfing holiday (it is well located for golfing with numerous golf course quite near). The motel is old but with some improvements recently made, like a new roof, has succeeded to give an impression of being well maintained. Rooms are large and at least a couple of them as good...

I would advise staying away from this little motel from the 40's. Beds not too bad but almost no pillow. We could not close out the light from the window, had roaches hiding under everything and one wash cloth, two THIN towels & no bath mat. Returned second evening to find room not made up but extra wash cloth but... More

All positive reviews about this place are fake. In reality this is a completely unsafe and horrible place. The previous reviewer was absolutely honest "This place is in a very creepy part of Lake Worth". The only truth from the positive reviews is that the room size is ok. The rest is unacceptable: the smell in the room (Tabaco and... More

I posted a very positive review of this hotel after staying there in 2011. I was visiting the WPB area again in July 2013, so re-booked without a moment's hesitation. BIG mistake, In the not-quite 2 years since my last visit, the hotel has deteriorated terribly--I suspect due to the fact that Mike (the owner) has decided to keep his... More

I chose this motel because of the positive reviews I read on TripAdvisor. What a disappointment. Unfortunately, I had prepaid or I would have cancelled the reservation and moved on. The room was clean but very dated. The pool uninviting. Gates locked at night left me feeling unsafe. Other patrons seemed like residents of the place rather than vacationers. Felt... More

Lovely Persian restaurant with delicious and cheap food. The food is simply great- during our 4 night stay, we ate there 5 times. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. Security keeps a careful eye on the property at night in this quiet neighborhood. I recommend this motel highly and will stay there again.
